Course Reserves

The Reserve Collection is located at the Circulation Desk, just inside the main entrance of the library. Reserve materials are course-related items (books / media) kept at the Circulation Desk which have restricted use due to their high demand.

The library also has electronic reserves (Eres). Eres materials include full-text journal articles, links to streaming media and Microsoft Office documents that faculty use for their courses.  Students can search for and find Eres materials from any computer with internet connectivity.
